The Elderly Driver: Deciding When to Stop.
Persson, Diane
Gerontologist, v33 n1 p88-91 Feb 1993
Examined decision of 56 people living in retirement communities to quit driving, and role of physician and family in making this decision. Most stopped driving when threshold was reached after accumulation of compensatory behaviors. Few stopped because of doctor's advice, although all felt physician was in best position to evaluate driving, and family involvement received limited support. (Author/NB)
